I'm looking for some advice on a new kitchen floor. We just re-did the cabinets and countertops. We left the existing floor in place because it is a linoleum floor installed around 1960 and we have been told that either the flooring or the adhesive contain asbestos, (and possibly both contain asbestos). We have also been told we should not install any type of wood flooring over the linoleum as this would create a problem with moisture building up between the newly installed wood flooring and the linoleum especially here on the coast, (we live on Cape Ann). Tile may be an option as we've been told by the local tile shop that with today's adhesives we could go right over the old linoleum floor. I was under the impression that some type of tile backer, (cement board or hardy back board) was necessary as a subfloor for any tile. We'd like to avoid laminates and LVT's if possible so are looking for any feedback.
